1
¶ THE unjust conceives wickedness within his heart, for there is no fear of God before his eyes.
2
He is unwilling to see his sins forgiven, or to hate them.
3
The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit;
he is unwilling to do good.
4
He devises mischief upon his bed;
he walks in a way that is not good that he may do evil.
5
¶ O LORD, thy mercy is in heaven;
and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the universe.
6
Thy righteouness is like the mountain of God;
thy judgments are like a great deep;
O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
7
How abundant is thy lovingkindness, O God!
therefore the children of men take refuge under the shadow of thy wings.
8
They shall flourish with the richness of thy house;
and thou shalt give them to drink of the pleasant water of thy spring.
9
For with thee is the fountain of life;
in thy light shall we see light.
10
O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee, and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
11
Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
12
For there the workers of iniquity will fall;
they will be cast down, and will not be able to rise.
